Reading this book, reminded me of how mean some kids can truly be.

Being a bully isn’t a cool thing at all. This is a wonderful book for children of all ages! A critical lesson is learned on how to help make this world a happier place with less bullies! Beautiful artwork compliments this heartfelt story!

Just wanted to let you know that we read your book last night.

Or I should say my daughter read the book last night and we loved it! A wonderful story with so many life lessons. It generated some great conversation in our house.



Recently, I saw your beautiful book and I took the time to read it.

What an amazing book! Your eloquence in writing to children and letting them know that they can change just about anything was wonderful. Your book, I’m sure will let children see some of the problems that they might be dealing with and help them see how to change the situation.
